1921 postcard: Gute Freundschaft (good friendship)

This black-and-white postcard features a young girl and her cow. The German caption Gute Freundschaft (Jungfrau) translates to "Good Friendship (Maiden)".

I can't tell for sure, but it looks like this photograph might have been taken in front of a painted backdrop. If so, the effect and perspective were done very well.

The postcard was mailed in 1921 and was stamped at the Hotel Savoy in Interlaken, Switzerland. The note on the back states:
"Have been doing the lakes and mountains. Alpine climbers and campers interesting. Enthusiasts all ages and sex. Snowed four inches last Friday. Ski-racing today and tomorrow. J.C. [illegible last name]."
Sounds like a very vigorous outdoors-themed vacation!
